Confession - I haven't read the origninal short story upon which this is based so I can only imagine that this is a good adaptation of it because it is a good film unlike so many others that have been adapted from Mr King's excellent books. Christian Slater is perfectly cast as the Dolan of the title; a sleezy heartless people trafficker, who commutes between Las Vegas and LA in his armoured Cadillac Escalade. Wes Bentley plays the husband of a woman who is murdered by Dolan when she tries to give evidence against him. The whole story then revolves around Bentley's search for justice and the ingenious way in which he achieves it. As with many of King's novels you may not agree with the way its done but you'll cheer the end result. As for the disc itself, the picture quality is excellent and probably the best I have seen this side of blu-ray. The audio track is clear and dynamic and makes good use of the soundfield considering the type of film this is. If you like Stephen King or just a good solid thriller then you'll probably enjoy this.

Being a keen Stephen King reader, I am usually skeptical about adaptations of his work, having found that most movie/television versions fail to live up to the tensions wrought by King's unique style of storytelling. However, at a purchase price under £3 it didn't seem like too much of a risk to take. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that not only had the script for "Dolan's Cadillac" been well written but that the additions put in to flesh out the story rounded out all the characters nicely.

Christian Slater gives an excellent performance as the amoral Dolan, moving from in-control kingpin to a crazed man trapped by the husband of one of his victims. Wes Bentley also pulls off a nicely understated performance as Robinson. Admittedly there are points where staring vacuously is overdone, but on the whole it's a very enjoyable 85 minutes. A must for any King film fans.

The original story can be found in Stephen King's collection of short stories "Nightmares and Dreamscapes". It's a different experience to the film as it takes much longer for the tension to build, but I recommend it for anyone who wants an alternate take on this film.

At the time, I was looking for a movie just to sum up my basket price and I came along this Blu-Ray. At less than £3.00 brand new, I didn't take another glance, I bought it and watched it as soon as it arrived.

I didn't expect it to be any good...but I was surprised. A fantastic revenge film. Though can get a bit claustrophobic which adds to the atmosphere of the film.

Though the blu-ray does have its faults...sometimes the movie can drag slightly, not many special features. Though the blu-ray transfer is rather good.

If you like other Stephen King based movies, you'll like this one... You can tell its from the same person's mind...

The film is based on a short story by Stephen KIng, but while the source is more concerned with the actual 'how' of the enterprise, the film takes its time to ask in much more detail, 'why'. As a result, the film feels far more accomplished than the source, offering at last a more plausible rationale for one man's descent into insanity coupled with a simple but very well made revenge film. Not as elaborate as Law Abiding Citizen say, but with the same hard heart I found myself enjoying this immensely.

Bought this to add to the collection as I had read the Stephen King short story. Found this to be a good interpretation of the book. The film goes into a lot more detail and back story than Stephen King's version (but then it was only a SHORT story), and gives the viewer a chance to get to know Elizabeth and therefore have a little more sympathy for her and her husband.
Christian Slater does a great job as Dolan and is well cast, giving the character a more human quality, that despite how evil he was, made me feel a little sorry for him at the end.
The film does take a while to hot up though and if you can make it through the first 45 mins, the rest is quite good, with the last half hour really tense. Well worth watching if you are a King fan or not,

I am a great fan of Stephen King's work and many times am disappointed with the film adaptations, but Dolan's Cadillac was a breath of fresh air, it didn't deviate from the short story too much and for that I'm grateful. Christian Slater plays an excellent bad guy. The film centres around a man who had lost his wife in a car bomb explosion and revenge with a twist is the order of the day.

As others have said this isnt really a story that is long enough for a full length film. However, I did enjoy it and thought it did justice to the original short story. That is such a delicious slice of cold revenge!!
